Student testimonials

  • “Throughout placement we were provided with a variety of tasks which was vital to our practice, including working alongside children with special educational needs e.g. a boy with Down’s syndrome. It was essential for us to help support his balance, co-ordination, and provide challenges. This was vital for his learning and development.”

  • “The skills I learned there will help me with my future. I gained experience in how to interact with people even when we don’t speak the same language. As a paramedic you never know the people you are going to meet at an accident, if the people are able to speak the same language or not you will still have to deal with the situation.”
